Frozen fruit juice is basically the garbage shovelled off the floor that has been stepped on and mushed for a duration of a shift for berry processing other things. Fruit Juice is kinda like the hotdog of the beverage industry.

Organic food in the grocery store is still sprayed with pesticides. About 70% less than normal stuff but the point is, you can't buy organic food in a grocery store. You gotta grow it yourself. So those inflated prices you are paying are not really worth it imo.

^No, they're relatively high turn-over. But this is coming from a guy with morals. People think of the most fucked up shit to do with food.

Damn I ate at Little Caesars last night.. But then you can see them make the pizzas at the Burnaby location at least.

Not surprised about the pizza dough being left over. Even Domino's does that =/

Just the Coq. one I assume? Because ours used regular dough, none of it was actually fresh as it was mixed then made into different sized balls for the different pizza sizes, then put in the big fridge until needed. It was all date marked so it enver got more than a couple days old but that way we had a buffer if the dough mixer broke or something.

Any proof of that? Better yet do you know what it takes to grow organically?
To grow "organic" produce, you need to start off with the field that is certified organic. That means it has gone through a few seasons without any pesticides or chemicals. In that transition period, you can call the produce that is grown "transitional". Once the field meets the requirements, produce grown there can be considered "organic", but everything else afterwards need to be done a certain way. Graders, conveyor belts, washing machines all need to be washed and cleaned before any of the "organic" produce are run through them to avoid contact with non-organic produce.
Organic produce needs to be stored seperately from conventional produce to avoid contact from wate/rice that was in contract with conventional produce.
Most organic farmers invest a lot of money to make sure their farms are up to standards to produce organic products. Supply of organic farms are a lot less than conventional farns, and only has organic products taken off in the last few years, so for them to charge more for organic produce over conventional produce is understandable.
To make a blanket statement without facts to back it up, that is blantant lying.

PS. I wholesale produce for a living.

Organic food is a joke, nowadays you pretty much need those pesticides in order to keep all the other junk that's floating around out there away.
